The next wine in our feature is Gaia Wines Wild Ferment Assyrtiko PDO 2015, courtesy of Hallgarten Druitt and Novum wines
The grapes for this wine are grown in Santorini, where the sun shines all year round. The vineyards there date back 3,000 years, and the surrounding Aegean sea ‘buffers’ the climate so that the vintages are consistent. All these elements, combined with one of the noblest grape varieties in the Mediterranean, create rare and precious wines.
With Wild Ferment, the palate is salty dry with laser-beam precision and very funky wild ferment layering of complexity with oak wreathed with minerality. Wine gang say “The finish is dry, with lasting salty and tangy flavours. A unique and outstanding wine.” We say try it for yourselves at the Wine Festival on the 8th and 9th October!
